Daily Edge for Wed. Oct. 3

BRIGHT SPOT.  We’re watching the weather this week as rain, wind and snow put a damper on most outside activities. The one exception is Pheasant Opener on Saturday! We check that forecast out and get you geared up in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS:

UGH! The weather starting Thursday through Friday evening will be a wet and sloppy mess.  Cold temps coming down behind today’s winds will turn tomorrow’s rain into tomorrow night’s snow, and breezy conditions will make things messy for anyone on the road after 8pm.

 

OPENER! The pheasant opener on Saturday is the one bright spot in the weekly calendar, with temps cool in the thirties and low forties, light winds out of the east, and generally pleasant conditions.

 

CHECK IT OUT.  Do you have your checklist ready for the weekend? Gun(s), ammo, dog and its gear, clothing (add a layer!), boots, GPS, cooler, and everything else?  Lock those items down now to prepare for a great weekend!

Stay Sharp!
